A Turkish woman is providing sanctuary to stray cats during the cold winter months.

Sebnem Ilhan of Tekirdag, Turkey, was worried homeless cats would suffer being stuck out in the cold so she built a little ladder the cats could use to climb up to her window and into her house, The Dodo reports.

Worried that neighbors might raise an issue with a cat ladder sticking off the side of her home, Ilhan, who works as a dentist, decided to spruce it up with some flowers.

Luckily, it hasn’t been an issue, and we’re sure the street cats appreciate the warm reception.
